A non-invasive solution for sagging and aging skin
Skin Worthy is pleased to be offering patients a non-surgical alternative to combat skin laxity. SkinTyte allows patients to treat sagging, aging skin on the face, neck and body. With this no-downtime treatment patients are able to maintain their youthful appearance without invasive procedures. This procedure is a suitable alternative for patients with minimal skin laxity who do not qualify for surgery.
What Conditions can be Treated with SkinTyte
-skin laxity in face, neck and body
-fine lines and wrinkles
-pre/post neck lift surgery
-post Botox/Xeomin/collagen injections
-sagging skin post weight loss
What will Happen During the Procedure?
Procedure: The SkinTyte BBL uses infrared light technology to deeply heat and stimulate
dermal collagen. BBL gently heats the lower layers of the skin while the top layers of skin
are cooled by the machine’s sapphire plate. The lower layers of skin absorb the heat and
are stimulated to regenerate and tissue is firmed. Before your treatment you will be
provided with protective goggles and a cleansing of the treatment area to remove any makeup, lotions or oils. The treatment itself does not require topical anesthetic, it feels similar to the snap of an elastic band. Mineral make up can be applied on non-compromised skin post treatment.
When Should I Expect Results?
SkinTyte procedure results may vary due to the area being treated and from patient to patient. This treatment is recommended for patients who desire noticeable, moderate improvements to their skin laxity without having to undergo invasive procedures like surgery. It generally takes approximately 4 months to see results as the collagen foundation of your skin is regenerated and reinforced.
How Should I Prepare for my Treatment?
This treatment is not recommended for patients currently taking isotretinoin or any other medications that cause photosensitivity.
